I watched this over Christmas and had trouble getting interested. I normally enjoy thrillers like this, but for some reason this one did not draw me in. I was not invested in the characters and was bored by halfway through.

If you enjoy psychological thrillers, you'll enjoy this one. Interesting and bizzare twists! Great performance by Annette Benning.

In Dreams
Arnita D. Brown | USA | 03/11/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Claire Cooper dreams strange things from time to time. One night, she dreams about a little girl being taken away by a stranger, right in her neighbourhood. When her own daughter Rebecca is kidnapped and murdered only a little later, Claire is sure about the chilling truth that her and the killer's mind are connected to each other in dreams. But nobody believes her being able to foresee the killer's next steps, as she could with her own daughter. In addition, the nervous breakdown she suffers gets her into a mental facility after a suicide attempt. And here, locked away in a padded cell, she dreams of her husband being murdered. This movie is a taut, edge-of-your-seat complex thriller. Sure, it may be a bit unrealistic, but as far as storytelling, directing and acting, it's a very good movie. Both Robert Downey Jr. and Annette Bening are outstanding. If you enjoy the work of either of these two actors, or if you enjoy complex, mind-bending thrillers, watch this.

"I had never even heard of this movie before deciding to watch it late at night on TV. I am beyond pleasantly surprised. Superb acting (particularly from Bening and Downey), elegant suspense, and above all immensely creepy. The cinematography is surreal and gorgeous, making you feel almost as though you're suffering Claire's horrific dreams right along with her. And through the whole thing there was that wonderful tension you get from a good suspense movie, I spent most of the movie leaning forward, waiting for what might happen next.

It's not a perfect movie, of course, not by a long shot. There are some scenes that are awkwardly abrupt or disjointed, and the ending is far more predictable and uninteresting than the rest of the film. And it's certainly the type of movie that requires some willing suspension of disbelief. If the idea of psychic connection seems ridiculous to you, I'd steer you away from this one. But if you're the type that likes a good creepy suspense film with some gory violence and fantasy mixed in, you'll enjoy this I think. Go into it expecting something weird, interesting, and rather different, and you'll come out satisfied"
